Who’s ready to start the New Year off right? It can be a little tricky to eat healthy during the cold months. However, if you have the right recipes on hand it’s not tricky at all! We love our Wilted Winter Salad, Winter Pomegranate Salad, and Cabbage Quinoa Winter Salad. Now, it’s time for a delightful Asian salad that you won’t ever forget!
Asian flavors are some of our very favorites and this salad really delivers. For an extra fun twist, we’ve made this salad completely vegetarian! The dressing is beyond amazing and when you combine it with the cilantro and sesame seeds you have a Heavenly dish. If you love Asian food, you might want to try our Quick and Easy Asian Wraps as well. They’re great for the winter too!
